Tom Hicks Gets a Billboard in Liverpool. (Ten, Actually.) But Not the Good Kind.

As you can see here, SoS has gotten into the billboard business, erecting five out of a planned 10 signs directed at Hicks and George Gillett, who bought the football club three years ago in February and now find themselves saddled with so much debt they need investors to help pay down the bill.
